I was finishing my reports. Five minutes until I could clock out for the day. Looking forward to dinner and a relaxing evening when the call came in.
Homicide at Heartbreaks R Us. Arrived and wouldn’t you know it? It’s Cupid. The press is going to be all over this. Forget dinner. Forget a relaxing evening. Forget sleep. We’re going to be on this 24/7 until we find the perp.
Looks to me like someone didn’t like the match he made. The perp dropped a “nope” heart on the vic.
Gonna be a tough one. Half the city is either falling in love or breaking up. Sometimes all in the same day.
Sighs. Gonna be a long night.
The end …. for Cupid ….
Okay, you’re right. It was supposed to be a story for another picture prompt but I drew a blank this week. So I am letting that picture ride for another week as a prompt. However if you want to write a story to this pic instead, feel free. I wrote this one originally March 3rd and posted it on Flickr under Kayla Woodrunner, avatar.

You can use the Amazon search bar to do any search at Amazon like I did with “microfiction crime”. I have a quirky hobby. I enjoy putting random phrases into search engines and seeing what pops up. First I tried “cupid is dead fiction” and up popped a 6-inch figure of Marvel’s Poison. Now you have to wonder. Did Poison kill Cupid?
